Here at Elektor we’re excited to announce three new arrivals to our books portfolio, courtesy of Newnes and Elsevier. The new titles are must-haves for all electronics enthusiasts and are guaranteed to keep you both educated and enthralled for a good while!

The first book is Embedded Systems Security, the ultimate resource for making embedded systems reliable, safe and secure. This book will give you an insight into operating system, microprocessor and network security issues that must be considered when designing secure embedded systems. By including case studies and practical and simple advice on such issues, this book studies the system architectures, operating systems and hypervisors, networking, storage and cryptographic issues you can’t ignore when designing secure embedded systems.

The second is the long awaited 6th edition of Programmable Logic Controllers. This edition continues with its straightforward and easy-to-read style, presenting the principles of PLCs without association to any particular manufacturer. It continues to boast extensive examples, illustrations, multiple choice questions and problems with answers to ensure the reader can understand the fundamentals of PLC, as well as identifying safety issues and methods for fault diagnosis, testing and debugging. New to this edition is a new chapter, more details of programming using Sequential Function Charts, extended coverage of the sequencer, and new information and case studies.

The third and final title is The Definitive Guide to ARM Cortex-M0 and Cortex. This book provides details information on these two processors including their architectures, programming model, instruction set and interrupt handling, as well as their differences. Written by ARM’s Senior Embedded Technology Manager, Joseph Yiu, the book is packed with examples on how to exploit the best features in ARM’s Cortex-M0 and Cortex M0+ processors.

These three books are definitely not to be missed out on, so go to the Elektor Store now to purchase your copy!
